Traveller’s Tales put out a first proper look at the first section of Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 today, as you can see after the break. It’s silly-cute.
We could write words, but if you don’t know what’s going on here you’re either dead or blind. Harry’s first Lego adventure’s coming for 360, Wii, PS3, DS, PSP and PC “later this year”.

Traveller’s Tales founder, Jon Burton, has said that Sony’s digital games service needs to support cheaper prices or the handheld will go the way of the dodo.
“I own a PSPgo but don’t want to buy LittleBigPlanet, for instance, as I can get it 20 percent cheaper on UMD from Amazon and could resell it once I’m finished with it,” Burton told attendees at the Developer Jury Service.
“But if I download it, I get no discount, and no chance to resell – how annoying is that? I’m betting on Sony making PSPgo games much cheaper than the UMD versions, or the PSPgo will die.”
Tough words, there Jon.

Warner has promoted Jeff Junge to senior VP of business management in wake of its acquisition of Midway Games.
“Jeff is a tremendous asset to the studio and has been a key contributor to the success of many of the company’s major initiatives,” said Warner Home Entertainment president Kevin Tsujihara.
“He is a strategic thinker, has exceptional insight into the deal making process and is a tireless worker. Jeff’s expertise will be critical as we continue to expand our business and explore new opportunities.”
Junge was instrumental in the purchase of Traveller’s Tales back in 2007, and Warner’s investment in OnLive.
His new position will entail continued merger and acquisition suggestions and implementation.

NetDevil has revealed that its upcoming MMO, LEGO Universe, could bridge the generation gap between parents and their children.
“I talk a lot about the visual divide between generations, and I feel it quite acutely between, say my mother and my son,” the game’s creative director, Ryan Seabury, told Eurogamer.
“His grandmother I can’t drag onto email kicking and screaming. I’ve tried three times. But he’s going to grow up with email as just part of his vocabulary – it’s not like a new concept or anything. So how are they going to communicate? How are they going to have a relevant conversation?
“I look at LEGO as a language, as an idea. She understands it: she bought it for me when I was a kid. My son likes it, I like it. So even though she may not be playing LEGO Universe, I’ll be playing LEGO Universe, he’ll be playing LEGO Universe and there’s a relevant connection there.
“Good games are fun to play, no matter what. There’s a lot of depth that we can offer that will be there. Obviously it’s family-friendly so it’s going to be in a different context to some of the more adult-themed games. But if you like LEGO and if you like playing MMOs or connecting with your friends and playing games then you’re probably going to like LEGO Universe.”
Jonathan Smith, head of Traveller’s Tales agreeed, stating that LEGO creates a world where parents can come together with their children.
“Online games and the online communications experience are very accessible and children are ready for that, immersed in that, and parents are not,” he said. “So this is where the children can actually lead the parents by the hand and show them what to do, and that can be a really powerful experience together.”
A Beta test is expected for the game in 2010. More through the link.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues will allow not only level creation, but two players can create levels simultaneously.
This new feature is expected for all console versions, and of course will not be shareable between consoles.
It’s like a cross between ModNation Racers and LBP, according to Joystiq’s man on the floor at Develop.
